Face Masks and COVID-19: What Retailers and Consumers Need to Know About the New Must-Wear Accessory

Governor Cuomo and several other governors have now made wearing face masks in public mandatory. Meanwhile, essential retailers such as Kroger, Walmart and Sam’s Club have announced that all employees will be required to wear masks. Now that masks are compulsory for so many of us, everyone needs to know what makes one mask safer or better than another. In this episode, guest host Melissa Gonzalez interviews Angela Chan of Chargeurs and Christy Raedeke of Noble Biomaterials to find out what retailers and consumers should know about masks. Chargeurs and Noble have recently joined forces to create washable, reusable cloth face masks with an antimicrobial filter, which will be available to consumers in the US within weeks.
